The rising senior guard took an official visit to Pitt from June 4-6, and enjoyed his time meeting the staff and seeing the campus.
“Genuine,” was the word Mintz used to describe head coach Jeff Capel after meeting him in person for the first time. “I think genuine would be a good word for him. He’s pretty nice. He got along with my family just fine. They liked him, he liked them, so, it was a really good experience meeting him and spending some time with him.”
With the commitment, Mintz becomes the first player to pledge to the Panthers in the 2022 class, as well as Capel’s fourth top-100 commitment in his time at Pitt.
